Humane education does this, offering young people deeply meaningful education about the issues of our time, teaching them to be critical and creative thinkers, inspiring their reverence and respect, and empowering them to be conscientious decision-makers. This book offers teachers clear suggestions for implementing humane education in both classrooms and non-traditional educational settings. Inviting and easy to use, it describes the four elements of humane education, along with stories, examples, case studies, activities and resources.

Claude and Medea aren't expecting an odd substitute teacher to change their lives. Nor are they anticipating the dangerous adventure in store for them. They seem like normal kids. But are they?
Claude has famous parents and sticks to the rules. Medea's got a scholarship to a fancy private school and can't get in trouble. How is it that they are thrown together, trying to outsmart Manhattan criminals? And why do they care so much about the weird Ms. Rattlebee? Find out what makes this unlikely pair begin to view the world differently, and to risk everything.
Claude and Medea: The Hellburn Dogs is a riveting story that will make kids eager for more while offering them true heroes for today's world. This is a book that gives kids not only what they most want but also what they most need―protagonists who embody courage, compassion, and care.
In Above All, Be Kind, Zoe Weil teaches parents how to raise their children to be humane in the broadest sense. This includes being more compassionate in their interactions with family and friends, also means growing up to make life choices that demonstrate respect for the environment, other species, and all people.
The book includes chapters for early, middle, teenage, and young adult years, as well as activities, issue sidebars, cases, tips, and profiles.
